Hey Babe, I'm Queer!?
By Alison Jamison Coaching
This is a podcast about coming out in a heteronormative (presenting) relationship--even after ten years of marriage. Hi! We're Alison & Tanner and we've known each other for quite a while (14 & 17 when we met, then lived our separate lives before we got back together... we digress). We had been married about a decade before we came out to each other as anything but the CisHet couple we presented to the world--and each other! Come join us for some queer conversation (& laughs) and see how satisfying it is to be authentic with the folks that matter most in your life.
